SARBANES-OXLEY & The Environment
Management will be judged on disclosure decisions with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight.

The Sarbanes-Oxley (SARBOX) Regulations require a public company to disclose “material” costs and liabilities associated with the following three (3) environmental provisions:
• Costs to comply with all enacted or adopted environmental regulations.
• Costs associated with legal proceedings of enforcement actions or Superfund liability.
• Costs associated with “any known trends, demands, commitments, events or uncertainties”.

Environmental Reporting Takes a 180
Prior to Sarbanes Oxley, Environmental Compliance was often relegated to a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. The laws concerning disclosure made compliance auditing viable to those operations with confidence in their attorney or programs. SARBOX made this view of the disclosure irrelevant.

The disclosure rules now put responsibility on management to accurately report the potential liability of material issues. This requirement drives companies to install management systems and processes to insure all potential environmental issues are addressed at all facilities.

A company with a repeat violation costing $3000.00 to correct may be in a material reporting situation if the infraction is identified at 50 locations.

Mannus Corporation has specialized in implementing management processes to identify, quantify, report, and correct the environmental liability issues at government, industrial and commercial facilities.

Comprehensive Solution to Disclosure

The Mannus Compliance System (MCS) combines proven experience, sound process and environmental expertise to deliver a justifiable report for Management Disclosure.
• The MCS has been implemented for a large organization with operations in each of the 50 states.
• Cost effective solutions have been developed.
• The MCS allows Environmental Groups to provide instant reports to the CEO and the Board of Directors concerning violations, ranked by frequency of occurrence, proposed corrective actions and costs summarized across the entire corporation.

Mannus Services
Mannus Corporation approaches each client according to its individual requirements.
The typical “logical next step” approach to develop the appropriate supporting documentation for SARBOX includes:
• Evaluation of Current Process
• SOP Development
• Compliance: EHS
• Auditing
• Training
• Data Integration

The flow of services is driven by the initial evaluation enabling Mannus to determine the best approach to integrate a solution seamlessly into the organization. Mannus Corporation has been instrumental in instituting the MCS process into existing operations. An added benefit to this program is enhancing the corporate image and elevating environmental awareness with all stakeholders.

Mannus Corporation is the key independent third party evaluator for companies wishing to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Environmental Requirements.
